Question about Samyang 16mm f2 lens on crop sensor camera

Photography Equipment & Products - www.thephotoforum.com
Hi!

I'm going to Yosemite in the summer and would like to do some astrophotography there, but am finding it difficult to choose a lens. I have a Canon EOS 60D and 700D and have am currently thinking the Samyang 16mm f2 because of its wide angle and wide aperture. I initially decided on the Samyang 14mm f2.8 but changed to the 16mm because it was specifically designed for APS-C sensors and the 14mm is not and would give a smaller field of view.

However, the product page on the Samyang website says that it has an equivalent focal length of 24mm on APS-C sensors. How can it not be 16mm on APS-C if it's a 16mm lens designed for APS-C sensors? Will it actually be 16mm when used on my two APS-C cameras or will it be 24mm? If it is 24mm then which lens would you suggest, the 14mm or 16mm?

Additionally, if you would recommend a better (< £300) lens for astrophotography for APS-C cameras then please say.

Thanks
